He wasn't in dire straits or anything, it was just less juggling for them to take my money now and pay me back whenever. And I REALLYREALLYREALLY wanted to try out the client-to-client transfer feature =D
Any other time, he would have tried with all his might to figure out something on his own, but I guess he's getting older and not willing to think too hard about stuff. He's starting to see that it's easier to let me help when I can and offer to.
I was happy when I bought them a new microwave to replace the broken one when I got my first job. I was happy when I got them a hot water boiler thing and they thought it was wonderful because they like mixing hot and cold to get warm water. I used the discount Family Plan deal as an excuse to put their cell phone on my billing account.
I'm just thrilled that I can.
